Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Pink Floyd

I'm hoping to find some more in depth information about Pink Floyd. I am hoping that someone can help point me in the right direction.
1) First i am wondering what the best books about Pink Floyd are?

2) What are the best web sites, or eassy's

I am mainly looking for what each of there songs lyrics are about, or what they mean. Also more basic biography about the indivedual band members, and the band as a whole.
and lastly what did other musicains, or groups think of Pink Floyd, how did they percive them?
If anyone knows a good place to find some of this Info please share, so that i may continue on my quest for more Pink Floyd Knowledge. A big thank you to everyone here at the archive

A really good book is the one Nick Mason wrote: "Inside Out: A Personal History of Pink Floyd."

Better than that Grand Funk's tune "inside looking out", not that's it a bad sound at all, but just the environment needed for such heart felt lyrics............

Im sitting here lonely like a broken man.
I serve my time doin the best I can.
Walls and bars they surround me.
But, I dont want no sympathy.

No baby, no baby,
All I need is some tender lovin.
To keep me sane in this burning oven.
And, when my time is up, youll be my reefer.

Life gets worse on gods green earth.
Be my reefer, got to keep smokin that thing.
No, no, no, no, no, no.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

I said now baby ... baby ..., let me smoke it ... smoke it ...
Makes me feel good ... feel good, yes, I feel good ... ahhhhh ...
Yes, I feel alright ... feel alright ..., yes, I feel alright ... feel alright ...
Yes, I feel alright ... ahhhhh ...
Ohhhhh ...

Ice cold water is runnin through my veins.
They try and drag me back to work again.
Pain and blisters on my mind and hands.
I work all day making up burlap bags.

The oats theyre feeding me are driving me wild.
I feel unhappy like a new born child.
Now, when my time is up, you wait and see.
These walls and bars wont keep that stuff from me.

No, no, baby,
Wont keep that stuff from me.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

I need you right now mama.
I need you right now baby.
Right by my side, honey.
All night long.

Make me feel alright ...
Yes, all ..., yes, all ..., yes, all ... alright.

You better come on up and get down with me.
Ill make you feel real good, just you wait and see.

Make me feel alright ..., yes, I feel alright ...
Yes, all ..., yes, all ..., yes, alright.

i don't know(???)...but as far as the lyrics go, The Animals lyrics for Inside Looking Out are mainly confined to the loneliness of missing the girl while in the pen...whereas Funk added the reefer element, perhaps suggesting the crime, as well as the punishment and the rebellion...always liked Mel's monster bass sound

speaking of Mr. Green Jean, what's the skinny on Good Singin', Good Playin', the Funk album Zappa produced and played on?

Ten years ago a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem and no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire Pink Floyd.

Pink Floyd, a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist. Sid Barret, a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless in a world of criminals who operate above the law.

Smi2les, you snickering, floppy eared hound. When courage is needed, you're never around. Those medals you wear on your moth-eaten chest should be there for bungling at which you are best. So, stop that pigeon, stop that pigeon, stop that pigeon, stop that pigeon, stop that pigeon, stop that pigeon, stop that pigeon. Howwww! Nab him, jab him, tab him, grab him, stop that pigeon now.
